What is a PID controller and how does it work?

This video is going to be about one of the very common applications of Solid-State Relays along with a Temperature PID Controller for locally controlling and monitoring the temperature in the industry.

In this video, you'll learn more about Solid State Relay applications; And of course, you'll get introduced to the Temperature PID Controllers.

We'll talk about the PID temperature controller working principle; We'll see how a temperature ON/OFF Controller works in conjunction with a Solid State Relay.

We'll also check out the datasheet of the temperature controller to see how to set a PID

In the end, we'll check the input and outputs on the same graph to get the gist of this example and see how PID Controller works with an SSR.

I cover how to wire and program a PID controller for temperature control. Using a PID controller (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) for temperature control is probably the best way to control an oven temperature when accuracy is important.

I am using this PID (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) controller to manage the temperatures I need in a cerakote oven I made from an old smoker I picked up for \$25. Some examples of where a PID controlled oven or other device could be used are distilling, brewing, incubators, reef tanks, a hen house, lizard habitat and a steel or knife tempering oven. There are many possibilities where a PID temperature controller can come in handy.
